The Stand-Alone Philosophy Minor


At some schools, there’s no philosophy major, just a philosophy minor. What should it be like?

[Barnett Newman, “Cathedra”]

The question comes from a professor at such a school looking for ideas. He notes that at schools with only a philosophy minor, there may be just one or two people teaching philosophy. There’s also the need to attract students majoring in other subjects at an institution in which philosophy does not have a large presence.

It would be particularly useful to hear from faculty at such schools, but suggestions from all about how to design a stand-alone philosophy minor are welcome.

Thanks.
